Omaha Police Bust Marijuana Growing Operation

Omaha police busted a marijuana growing operation Thursday night.

Only Channel Six News was there as investigators served a search warrant at a rental house near 52nd and Rees Street. Rees is just south of Leavenworth.

The marijuana was being grown in the basement. 58 plants in various stages of growth were seized.

Omaha police identified 20-year old Christopher Owens as the suspect.

Neighbors and the landlord became suspicious when no one was taking care of the snow in the driveway and sidewalk. The lights had been flickering recently too which spurred calls to police.
